do we want to notify the user of day-to-day updates during
normal usage? I think there'd be a lot of resistance against nmap
"phoning home" ever time it's run to check for updates, but perhaps we
can take a page from Metasploit's metaphorical book and print, "it's
been 45 days since your last update, to get the latest scripts you
should run nmap --update now!".

That sounds like a great approach to me.
